Durham, N. C, November i6, 1887. 

The Baptist State Convention met this morning at 10 
o'clock in the Baptist Church of Durham. The delegates 
joined in singing "Jesus, lover of my soul." Elder C. T. 
Bailey, of Raleigh, the President of the last session, called 
the Convention to order, and asked Elder R. R. Overby, of 
Camden county, to conduct devotional exercises. Elder 
Overby read the third chapter of Colossians, and the Con- 
vention sang " Am I a soldier of the cross ? " Elder Overby 
then led in prayer.

tials: Elders W. R. Gwaltney, W. B. Pope, J. F. Love, and

Missions and Woman's Work, and also the report of the 
Sunday School Board, as follows: 



8 MINUTES OF THE 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

FOREIGN MISSIONS. 
BY ELDER THEO. WHITFIELD. 

To the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina : 

The last report of the Foreign Mission Board was exceedingly encouraging. 
"We give the following summary: 

Brazil: Missionaries, (native and foreign), 14; churches and stations, 6; bap- 
tisms, 30; members, 175. 

Mexico: Missionaries, 17; churches and stations, 21; baptisms, lOO; mem- 
bers, 350; contributions, $823. 

Italy: Missionaries, 15; churches and stations, 14; members, 306; baptisms, 26. 

Africa: Missionaries, 16; baptisms, 26; members, 138. 

China: Missionaries, 54; churches and stations, 24; baptisms, 46; members, 
677; contributions $699; besides a chapel built at Shanghai by Deacon Wong, 
costing about $1,000. 

Our Foreign Missionaries are 58; of whom 24 are ministers and 34 ladies. 
The baptisms for one year were 228; and the contributions in mission fields, 
$3,oi2.6i. 

The receipts of the Foreign Mission Board were $87,830.53, the largest in 
its history. Of this amount North Carolina contributed $7, 242. 34.' The 
amount contributed in this Convention during the year ending November loth, 
1887, is $6,428.53. 

It is cause for thankfulness to God that our contributions to Foreign Missions 
have steadily increased. But we have not yet reached that amount which is 
oar proportion of the whole sum needed for our Foreign Mission work. 

A few months ago, the life of our beloved Yates was seriously threatened, 
but he has so far recovered that we may hope to 'see his face again. Our 
brethren Herring and Bryan have made unusual progress in their work, and 
their health continues good. 

We devoutly hope that the interest in Foreign Missions will continue to 
extend until all our churches shall be coniributors to this grandest christian 
entc' prise — the evangelization of the heathen world. 

HOME MISSIONS. 
BY ELDER A. (5. .m'MANNAWAY. 

The work of the Home Mission Board during the past Conventional year 
was as follows : 

Missionaries 251 

Places occupied. - 822 

Baptisms. 3.923 

Received by letter .. .- 2,319 

Churches constituted 119 

Houses of worship built. 62 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 9 

Twenty-five of its Missionaries have labored among the colored people of the 
South, six are at work in Cuba, and the rest are preaching the gospel as we 
hold it to our fell >\v-citizens of the Southern States and Territories. 

The Board claims that after all the State Boards have done what they can, 
there are still ;. I least ten millions of our Southern population among whom it 
may find an appropriate field for its labors. To this number is to be added the 
seven millions of colored people who are largely dependent upon us for religious 
culture and training. This already large field for usefulness is continually 
growing larger as the population increases, and the people are much more sus- 
ceptible to the influences of the gospel now than they will be after the isms and 
errors of the outside world shall have been brought to them by the tide of emi- 
gration. In view of these facts the Bonrd asks for an increase of fifty per cent, 
upon the receipts of last year. 

Last year North Carolina raised $1,620 31 for this Board. Let us make it 
$2,500 this year. The receipts for this object since May ist, 1887, have been 
more than fifty per cent, larger than for the corresponding period of last year. 
As the work is now better organized than ever before, and as there are nearly 
800 brethren and sisters in North Carolina who are the appointed and recog- 
nized representatives of this Board in their respective churches, may the Board 
not confidently rely on $2,500 from our State for the year ending May 1st, 1888 ? 
The amount given this year is $2,038.35. 



ANNUAL REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S CENTRAL COMMITTEE 
OF MISSIONS, TO THE STATE MISSION BOARD. 

The second year's work of the Woman's Central Committee of Missi ■ns has 
been one of marked increase in all of its departments. The 114 Societies re- 
porting in 1886, have grown to 171, and the contributions of the present year 
exceed those of last year by more than $700. 

One of the most interesting features of the year's work has been the publica- 
tion and free distribution of a little missionary paper. The Missionary Talk, 
devoted to the interest of the Woman's Mission Societies, giving the latest mis- 
sionary news and items of State work, thereby drawing the societies together in 
that sympathy and union that gives strength to all. We feel that to this de- 
partment of labor is largely due the growth of our work. 

An itemized statement of the work of the Central Committee for the past 
)'ear is as follows : 

Letters written ^ 602 

Mission leaflets distributed 1,880 

Blank forms distributed 975 

Constitutions sent out 250 

Quarterly Reports distributed 2, 500

It will be observed that the names of some societies do not appear on this 
"list. A part of these have devoted the amounts raised by them to church im- 
provements and others have been recently organized. 

There is throughout the State a constantly increasing interest in this work, 
which we believe will continue. To insure this result we earnestly ask all those 
interested in the progress of God's Kingdom and the answer to the oft repeated 
prayer of our Lord, " Thy Kingdom Come," that they give to the work all the 
aid in their power. 

With thankfulness to the Giver of all increase, this report is respectfully sub- 
mitted.

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD. 

To the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina : 

Dear Brethren : — While the work of the Sunday School Board has not 
been as aggressive during the year just past as we had hoped it would be, there 
has been progress. Year by year the Sunday School work is taking deeper hold 
in our churches, and gradually we are realizing that it is no longer to be regarded 
as a separate department of church work, but an important part of it. The 
history of the revival seasons gives the brightest evidence of the Sunday School 
as the great gospel plant bed. Look at the number of conversions reported 
from the churches during the past year— inquire how many of these came from 
the Sunday School, and no further argument is needed to urge the importance 
of increasing the number and extending the work. 

At the last session of the Convention a resolution was adopted, requesting 
each Sunday School to contribute to our Board one cent per member each 
month : the purpose being to create a fund with which to establish new schools 
and in extending the work generally as they may direct. We regret that so 
few of the schools responded to this call. The whole amount received from 
this source was $340 71. Of this amount $324.58 has been expended as origin- 
ally designed. If the resolutions had met with a hearty response, a great work 
might have been acc(miplished. 

Sunday School Institutes, under the direction of the Board, were held during 
the past year at a number of important central points, and their influence, we 
are led to believe, was widespread and helpful. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 1 3, 

During the year the Board has been enabled through its Supply Store, to 
extend much valuable aid to ministers (in the way of commissions on books, 
discounts, etc.), and to Sunday Schools unable to buy Bibles, Testaments, Sun- 
day School helps and song books. This Supply Store has become a necessity 
and is doing a good work. Following is a statement of its present condition. 
Ourchurclies should not fail to contribute to it, our schools should not fail to 
purchase their supplies from it :

The Board respectfully offers the follovi'ing suggestions : 

1. During the year we have seen, more than ever before, the necessity for a 
general system of colportage in the State. The demand is now imperative. 
Longer delay is dangerous. God has given us, in the printing press, a great 
opportunity. It is quite impossible, now, for a Baptist preacher to be located 
in every neighborhood in the State. The supply of preachers is inadequate, 
and in thousands of neighborhoods there are no Baptist churches. These neigh- 
borhoods may be reached by colporters with Bibles and other Baptist books and 
papers. They can organize Baptist Sunday Schools. They can supply other 
Baptist Sunday Schools with literature, keep them alive in winter, urge collec- 
tions, and in many other ways stimulate and encourage the work. Such a sys- 
tem would be the salvation of our Supply Store, the growth of which has been 
far too slow. This store should do ten times the business it now does. It 
should receive ten times the aid it now receives, and will receive, from the Pub- 
lication Societies, if th^ matter is properly pushed. This will come as the busi- 
ness increases. The business will increase with the multiplication of colporters. 
When the time comes that shall see the Baptist preachers buying their books, 
all oitr Sunday Schools buying their books and papers. Baptist families supply- 
ing their family libraries with religious works, and Baptist colporters filling their 
boxes through this one agency, the Supply Store, it is safe to estimate that its 
annual business will be at least $50,000. With an organized system for the 
distribution and sale of religious literature behind this store, we see great hope 
for it and the denomination. Let the Convention take hold of it. 

2. We ask the Convention to come to our aid by recommending that the 
Sunday School workers in the State have a great Sunday School Convention on 
the first Sunday in July next, at some centra! point in the State, and that the 
Corresponding Secretary of the Baptist State Convention use his best efforts to 
secure a large attendance at said Convention. 

In conclusion, we feel it proper that we should say that the loss of our be- 
loved brother John E. Ray, from this State, will be felt in no department more 
than in that of our Sunday School work. His warm heart, and ready, intelli- 
gent suggestions will be missed by nearly if not all of the Schools and workers 
throughout our borders. Leaving us at the time he did, prevents our giving to 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 15 

you as full and complete a report as desirable. To no man under God do we 

owe so much of love and gratitude as to John E. Ray, for the great march of 

our Sunday School work during his labors as Secretary of our Board, and we 

pray for our Heavenly Father's richest blessing upon him in his new field of 

labor.

Elder Hufham, for committee, offered the following report, 
which was adopted : 

ON PERIODICALS. 

Our fathers were wise when they provided for the establishment of a weekly 
newspaper as one of the agencies for doing the work committed to them of the 
Lord. Through the infancy of this body it did indispensable service in making 
known the real aims of the Baptists and in correcting misrepresentations which 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 21 

were industriously circulated in every part of the State. In every crisis of our 
denominational history since, the Recorder has been one of the most efficient 
instrumentalities employed by us in defending and propagating the truth as held 
by us. It is difficult to see how our work could have been done without the 
paper. 

The need for a journal which shall express the thought of the Baptists of the 
State; shall strongly but courteously and prudently set forth and maintain their 
principles; and shall explain and advocate the great enterprises in which they 
are engaged; having also the largest possible circulation, has not passed away. 
Indeed it is more urgent than ever. 

The Foreign Mission Journal is devoted specially to the work of Southern 
Baptists in foreign lands. It is published in Richmond, Va., at 35 cts. a year 
for a single copy; four copies for one dollar; twenty-five copies for five dollars. 

The Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, Atlanta, fur- 
nish Kind Words, our well known Sunday School paper, published weekly, at 
50 cents per copy in packages of eight copies or more. They also furnish a full 
line of Sunday School helps at moderate prices. The Young Reaper, a beauti- 
fully illustrated Sunday School paper, is furnished by the American Baptist 
Publication Society at 10 cents per copy for the monthly and 20 cents a copy for 
the semi-monthly edition in packages of five copies and upwards. The same 
Society also furnishes all needed Sunday School helps of excellent quality and 
at small cost. 

On motion, Convention adjourned with benediction by- 
Elder Gwaltney. 



'fiGHT Session. 

Vice-President Blount called the Convention to order, 
"Coronation" was sung by the choir and congregation.

lowing, which was adopted :

Mission Board, was introduced, and addressed the Conven- 
tion. That portion of the report was then adopted. 

Elder James P. Boyce, Chairman of the Faculty of the 
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Ky.,

ing the interests of that institution. At the conclusion of

BAPTIST. STATE CONVENTION. 23 

THIRD DAY. 

Friday, November i8th, 1887. 

At the appointed hour the Convention assenribled, and 
devotional exercises were conducted by Elder G. W. Gard- 
ner, of Hickory, who read Psalm 31st and led in prayer. 

The Secretary read the minutes of yesterday, which were 
corrected and approved. 

Elder A. E. Dickinson, editor of t\\(i Religious Herald, ws^s 
introduced as a visitor. 

Secretary Durham read the report of the Board of Mis- 
sions on State Missions and tlie Treasurer's report, as follows : 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

With acknowledgments of God's goodness, and profound gratitude for his 
abundant mercies on us, and all the work committed to our hands during the 
past year, the Board of Missions presents this, its annual report. 

This has been a year of great trials and of great blessings. Never, perhaps, 
in the history of the Convention have our missionaries made greater sacrifices 
to do their work, and never have the Lord's blessings been more abundant. 



At the last Convention Elder J. F. Moore was with us, and we expected him 
to be with us many years. But not so. On the gth of January, 1887, the 
Lord said to our brother : " Thy work is done. Come up higher." He was 
ready, and gladly obeyed. He was young and well prepared for life's work. 
Elder J. F. Moore was one of the most godly, active and successful missionaries 
in the employment of this Board. 

DEPARTURE OF BRO. RAY. 

John E. Ray, so long the Corresponding Secretary of this Convention, left 
us for his new home in Colorado September 13th, 18S7. His work in our 
churches, Sunday Schools, mission fields. Associations, Conventions and Boards, 
will continue to live and bring fruit to the Master's glory. May the blessings 
of God be upon him and his work here and there, evermore. 

THE NEW SECRETARY. 

On September I2th, 1887, the Board was called together to select a successor 
to fill out the unexpired term of Brn. Ray. Elder C. Durham was unanimously 
elected to this position, and at once entered upon the work. 



24 MINUTES OF THE 

STATE MISSIONS. 

The great need of every one is the gospel, and the great privilege of every 
one knowing its power is to give it to those who have it not. The gospel, in 
consecrated lives, is the light to guide, the salt to preserve, and the leaven to 
elevate the people of our State. We live in the world that we may live for the 
world. The object of our being is to think the thoughts of God, and to unite 
with our Lord Jesus Christ in his purposes of human redemption. The best 
of time, of means and of life should be used in this work. The human soul is 
the soil into which God permits us to plant the seed which transforms the life 
into the image and glory of our Redeemer. 

God seems to be turning the people of our State to us more than ever before. 
Our opportunities are, therefore, being multiplied. The next ten years must 
tell largely on the religious opinions of our people. One dollar now, in State 
Missions, is worth move than ten dollars will be worth ten years hence. To 
fall behind now in the march of events in denominational work is to become 
powerless for good in the years to come; but to seize and wisely use our present 
opportunities is to take the State for the Master's glory. 

This Board has had during the past year in its employment eighty-two men 
engaged in preaching the gospel to the people of our own State. These have 
been located in the towns and country from the mountains to the sea. 

This number seems large, but it has not been large enough to meet the very 
earnest calls that have come lo us from many other promising and de.'titule sec- 
tions of the State.

to this Board. 



26 MINUTES OF THE 



A few weeks ago we expected to be compelled to report a debt to this Con- 
vention. But not so. The churches and individuals, all over the State know- 
ing our needs, come up most nobly to this work. We are, therefore, thankful 
to report every missionary paid in full for his work, and the Board hopeful and 
ready for another year's work. The excess of appropriations to missionaries 
this year, over that paid to missionaries last year, was $3,728.52. With many 
of our people there has been, perhaps, no year since 1866 when they have been 
harder pressed, and less able to give and yet, they have given larger amounts 
this year than ever before. 

SUGGESTIONS. 

(i.) Your Board would suggest that such action be taken as will continue the 
confidence of the missionaries and the churches, and will give hope to all the 
destitute sections of the State. Our State Mission work is too important, and 
too intimately connected with .nil our success, to be in any wise retarded. 

(2.) The Bible and Colportage work can, we think, be made a great power 
for good in the State. Every Association, church, mission field and neighbor- 
hood needs it, and should be touched and stimulated by it. It is, in the judg- 
ment of )our Board, too important to the prosperity of our churches and the 
growth of our cause to be neglected. 

CONXLUSION. 

The " fields are white unto the harvest." The denomination is united and 
hopeful. Every year marks an advance in our work. Let the next, year be 
better than any one in the past. The Lord bids us onward and upward for the 
glory of his name in the enlargement of his kingdom. 

W. H. Pace, 
C. DuRH.-VM, President Board of Missions.

comparing the accounts with the weekly acknowledgments made in the BIBLI- 
CAL Recorder since last annual report. I find that the said accounts are cor- 
rect, and all disbursements are supported by proper vouchers. 

W. N. JONES, 
Auditor of the N. C. Baptist State Convention.

made by C. Durham, G. P. Bostick, N. B. Cobb, J. E. Carter,

report was adopted.

Elder J. L. Stewart, for the committee, presented a report 
on the suisrgestion of the Board of Missions as to the time 
of meeting, which was made the special order for 9:30 A. M. 
on Saturday. 

The Secretar}' then read as the special order the report 
of the Board of Education, which, after addresses by Elders 
Hume, Pritchard, Dickinson, T. Dixon, Jr., was adopted, as 
follows : 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

There are now at Wake Forest foity-nine young brethren preparing for the 
work of the Ministry. Of this number, the Board of Education is aiding 
twenty- six, the others bearing their own expenses. During the past conven- 
tional year thirty-eight beneficiaries, first and last, received aid from the Board. 
Thirty or forty others, some of them boys of great promise, have asked for 
assistance, but lack of means compelled us to deny them. This should not and 
must not be. With our one hundred pasiorless churches in the State looking 
for and waiting for pastors who will be leaders; with a field constantly and 
rapidly widening through the blessing of God upon the work of the Board of 
Missions, we must realize still more keenly the importance of the work the 
board of Education is trying to do. The voice of God is in the churches call- 
ing daily more laborers, in answer to ihe prayers of his people. His hand is 
urging us to larger work. Did our means permit, we beheve that the next ses- 
sion would find seventy-five young preachers at the college getting ready for 
their work. While there is, and doubtless always will be, a hearty demand for 
unlettered preachers, all must see that the need of well trained minds in the 
pulpit is already greater than we can supply. Let our pastors and churches 
look at these things and set their hands earnestly to this work. 

We are gratified at being able to state, to the credit of the churches, that 
notwithstanding the distressing times their poverty has abounded to the riches 
of their liberality; so that their contributions have exceeded those of last year 
by Si-ooo, being some 8500 more than during any previous year. The debt of 
$300 reported at jour last session has been cancelled and there is a small bal- 
ance in the treasury. W. I,. POTEAT, 

R. T. Vann, Cor. Secretary. President.

MINUTES OF THE 



Elder J. F. Tuttle, of Salisbury, read a letter from Elder 
Crosby, Moderator of the Rowan Colored Association, which 
was referred to the Board of Missions and Sunday Schools. 

Elder Cade read the following, which was adopted after 
addresses by J. H. Mills, J. N. Stallings, E. Frost, J. J.

H. \V. Battle, A. E. Dickinson: 

REPORT OX ORPHANAGE. 

The Orphanage at Thomasville is firmly established; its success vindicates 
the wisdom of its founders and supporters; it has done a good work; it is doing 
a good work; it will continue to do a good work. 

There are seventy-six children at the Orphanage now, and others will come. 
These children must be tended, taught, fed and clothed. To do all these things 
requires money. Our brethren have this money; they can give this money; 
they ought to give this money; they will give this money. 

To make an argument to convince this Convention that these orphan children 
ought to be tenderly cared for and trained for usefulness, would be to outrage 
your Christian instincts, and this committee has no ambition to incur your dis- 
pleasure by any such performance. 

We commend to your attention and ask you to heartily support Charity and 
Children, our Orphanage paper.

Whereas, The Baptists in the entire State are one in aim and in work, and, 

Whereas, We desire the best understanding, and closest union possible 
with our brethren of the Western North Carolina Baptist Convention ; and, 
since Elder S. M. Collis, one of the oldest and most favorably known men in 
that body, has, in a recent number of the Biblical Recorder, indicated that 
the time has come for the union of the two Conventions ; therefore.

increased to nine, as follows : J. M. Heck, W. R. Gwaltney, A. G. McManna- 
way, C. B. Justice, W. A. Pool, G. W. Gardner. 

Resolved, id. That these correspondents bear to the Western Convention our 
fraternal greetings and expressions of our sincere interest in every department 
of their work, and say to them that, if in their judgment, at any time, the 
cause of the Lord Jesus Christ and the work of the denomination in the State 
can be best served by a union of the two Conventions, we are ready to consider 
such a proposition.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON OBITUARIES. 



We owe it to the dead, we owe it to the living, and we owe it as a 
sacred inheritance to future generations to commemorate the virtues of 
our departed worthies. The world has lost much, and the Baptists 
especially have lost much by the neglect of this duty. It is a matter of 
regret to your committee that the space allotted our report will permit 
little more than a statement of facts, without elaboration. The necrology 
of the year is large, several of our valaable laborers having been called 
to their reward. First, in the. order of age, and certainly, not second in 
merit, was the 

Rev. G. W. Hufham, 

who died at his home in Sampson county on the 3d of October last, at 
the ripe old age of 83. The son of John Hufham, a revolutionary hero, 
he was born in Duplin county, N. C, in 1804 ; the oldest of a family of 
thirteen children. He was educated at an academy in Wayne county 
and at Chapel Hill, and became a fair classical scholar. Proposing to 
study medicine, the whole course of his life was changed by his conver- 
sion and call to the ministry. He began to preach in 1830, and for seven 
years labored with great acceptance and success in the Eastern Associa- 
tion. In 1838, he removed to Mississippi, when by one effort in a camp- 
meeting he so seriously injured his voice that it never regained its wonted 
flexibility and power. He returned to his native State in 1845 ; served 
as pastor the churches at Magnolia, Johnson, Falling Creek and Mt. 
Holly ; was a liberal helper and wise counselor of young men in the 
ministry; a faithful friend of Wake Forest College and Warsaw High 
School, and a warm promoter of all the enterprises of the denomination. 
In 1831, he married Frances Eliza Dunn, with whom he lived in sweetest 
domestic happiness for more than fifty years. Their union was blest 
with nine children, six sons and three daughters, four of whom survive 
their parents, one of the four being the Rev. J. D. Hufham, D. D., 
■whose praise is known in all the churches. 

,Rev. E. a. Best, 

was a cotemporary of brother Hufham, laboring in the same Association 
for many years. He was born in Hampton, Va., in 1815, professed faith 
in Christ there and was the Superintendent of the Sunday School; 
removed to Norfolk in 1849, when he began to preach; was ordained as 
pastor of the Edenton church, N. C, Revs. Geo. Bradford and West 



42 



APPENDIX. 



Leary forming the presbytery; was afterward pastor of the Greenville 
church, served the churches of New Bern, Kinston and La Grange at 
different times, and spent the last years of his life in useful labors in 
destitute parts of the Eastern Association. He died at Richlands, in 
Onslow county, September 26th, 1887. He was twice married, his second 
wife being left to lament the loss of a devoted husband and faithful 
servant of the Lord. 

Rev. John E. Montague 

has also been taken from us within the past year. He wis born in Gran- 
ville county. X. C, in 1818; was educated at Wake Forest College, was 
ordained in 1850, Revs. R. L Devin and S. Creath forming the presby- 
tery, and was the successful pastor of Mill Creek and Bethel churches. 
Person county, for more than thirty years. Brother Montague was not a 
great nor a learned man, but he was a godly man and he loved to preach 
the gospel, and the Lord greatly honored his ministry. 

Rev. J. F. Moore, 

who died at Carthage, was a serious loss to the Sandy Creek Association 
and to the State, as he was a young man of good education, fervent zeal, 
much power in the pulpit and gave promise of a long life of usefulness; 
but the Lord saw that he could more perfectly glorify him m heaven than 
in earth and took him to himself in the beginning of his career. 

Your committee are grieved to have to chronicle also the death of two 
of the most useful laymen of the State, brethren Mark R. GREGORY, of 
Camden county, and J. T. Webb, of Franklin county. Deacon GREGORY 
died in December, 1886, in the 6oth year of his age. He was a man of 
great liberality and public spirit, having sustained with heart and hand 
and power, the cause of Sunday Schools, Missions and education all his 
life. For many years he was a Trustee of Murfreesboro Female Insti- 
tute and aided it in times of peril not only with wise counsel, but also 
with the most generous financial support, and he was the unfailing friend 
of Wake Forest College in all the vicissitudes of its history for the past 
thirty years. 

Brother Webb was repeatedly Moderator of his Association, the Tar 
River; was at one time a Trustee of Wake Forest College, gave one 
hundred dollars to its endowment a few years since, and was honored 
and loved as a faithful citizen and a consistent and useful Christian, by 
ail wh(j knew him. " The memory of the just is blessed."

power to elect a Treasurer. They shall report annually to the Convention. 

9. The Auditor shall, prior to each annual meeting of the Convention,

disposal will allow, supply all destitute portions of the State with faithful and 
efficient Ministers of the Gospel; give pecuniary aid, so far as can be secured, 
for building houses of worship at proper points in the State, and in cases where 
pecuniary aid cannot be given, commend them to the beneficence of the churches; 
encourage the distribution and study of the Bible and a sound religious litera- 
ture in the homes, in the churches, and in the Sunday Schools; encourage Sun- 
day School Conventions and Institutes; continue, and, so far as it may be able
